Geographic Solutions' Provider System, our education and training provider information software, provides staff and providers the ability to add and manage programs giving visitors the ability to compare training providers and programs. It can be used as a stand-alone module or as an integrated part of the Virtual OneStop and Virtual LMI suites of workforce solutions. The system design is easily configured to reside on existing local workforce web sites.
Provider Services is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and the Wagner-Peyser Act. Provider representatives can apply for WIA program certification, in addition to entering and maintaining their own program data. Our solution offers comprehensive education and training information, detailing WIA-approved providers and performance standings for college administrators, job seekers, and employers.
Provider Services also helps job seekers collect and compare the performance of training providers and programs, as well as access quality consumer information. The data includes state lists of performance/cost information relating to eligible training providers, as described in Section 122 of WIA. This includes the institution’s completion rate, placements, job retention, and earning gains for each program.
